Jack Davis, the 14-year-old Miami Shores resident who shot and killed a WaveRunner thief two years ago, will not face criminal charges. Prosecutors announced yesterday that they would not put the teen on trial because he "reasonably believed he and his mother were being attacked and were in imminent danger" when 20-year-old Reynaldo Muñoz stole the jet ski.
In reality however, the Davises were not in danger: Muñoz did not have a gun and could not hear their cries because he was deaf and mute.
Despite the dismissal of charges, plenty of questions remain unanswered. Why did the Davises initially lie about the shooting? Why didn't they retreat if they thought Muñoz had a gun? And why did a Miami-Dade detective wait six months to interview Jack Davis?
